Riley RME 1½ Liter – 1954

Beautiful, original and very rare Riley RME 1½ Liter Saloon from 1954 in patina condition. This Riley was registered in the Netherlands in 1990 and is richly documented, including the original instruction booklet, Service Parts List and other documentation, photos, etc. In the color scheme gray / green and equipped with the well-known wheel splashes at the rear. There is also a magazine with this Riley, dated August 1991, which contains a story about this car from the then owner, who also restored the Riley at the time. The RME was built / produced from 1952 to 1955, while this version was only made in 1954. The body was different from the original model; the running boards were gone, while the front and rear fenders were redesigned. In 1991 there were only eight restored RMEs of this type in the Netherlands. In terms of appearance, the RME shows characteristics of a Rolls Royce. The then owner called the car the Rolls Royce for the little man. The RME is a solid car and beautifully finished for that time, the dashboard consists of burr walnut and beige leather interior, which is in a neat patina. The engine was also overhauled at the time and the Riley has been stored dry over the years. Registered with the Riley Club Holland since the 1990s. In short, a rare and unique Riley RME 1½ Liter for many years of enjoyment.
